If you are suffering from dandruff, please don't worry, there are wonderful home remedies to treat it. Even I suffered from dandruff when I was young and I got it rid of it with home remedies. Dandruff Symptoms: The most common symptoms of dandruff are appearance of excessive amount of white flakes in the scalp and extreme itchiness. For me, it was mild itchiness and flakiness and once I started using home remedies, it stopped very quickly. Dandruff Causes: Dandruff can be caused due to variety of reasons. It can be due to stress, poor diet, fungal infection, not washing hair often and even certain medications can cause dandruff. You can read about all the causes for dandruff and the chemical treatments available along with their side effects here. There are really wonderful home remedies and herbs to treat dandruff. Here in Tamil Nadu, there is a herb called Poduthalai (we call dandruff "பொடுகு" in Tamil) which treats dandruff really well. The treatment my mom used for me was fenugreek hair mask, fenugreek hair mask works really well in treating dandruff but it does not agree with everyone as it is very cooling. People who are prone to sinus infection should never use fenugreek hair mask, they can use other remedies mentioned below.
